Open registry by clicking start>run> type regedit>press enter.
on registry look for
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}. delete upper and lower filters. restart computer if ok. If not, try to boot from optical drive using bootable CD(like win xp OS CD). if you cannot boot, replace optical drive.

Can't Play Blu Ray DVD


Hi,

You must be excited in playing that high definition Blu-Ray disc you have. Regarding your concern, CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive unfortunately, cannot play this format. You need to have a Blu-Ray drive to play that thing.

Thank you for visiting FixYa! have nice day.

Can lite-on-ltn4865 48x play dvd movies


If your Drive is a CD-Rome drive, surely it cant, for the drive cant read dvd disc. Replace the drive of yours with DVD-Rom or DVD-RW in order to play dvd disc, DVD-RW simply has the added capablity to burn on DVD discs

Emachine W6409. will play cd. will not play dvd.


sounds to me like you have a cd-rom drive and not a cd-r/dvd rom drive? are you sure it is a cd-r/dvd rom drive? If its not it won't play DVD's because CD drives use a different codec than DVD rom drives do. CD-r/dvd drive combos use the same codec though as one.

DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs


the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.

GOOD LUCK AND DONT FORGET TO RATE MY POST!! :D

Problems with D drive


Sounds like your D: drive isn't a DVD-ROM drive.

Have you been able to run DVDs from that drive before?
- If not, then you probably have a standard CD-ROM or CD-RW drive, which is not capable of reading from a DVD. You would have to purchase a DVD-ROM drive in order to play or copy anything from a DVD.
- If you have, let me know so I can help you further.

CD-RW/DVD-ROM drive


What DVD playback program are you using? Intervideo WinDVD is the best for-pay one, but you might look into Media Player Classic and VLC Media Player. Also, search google for K-Lite Mega Codec Pack and install it. It has the codecs required to play most movie formats. This could just be an issue of a broken codec. I would also recommend updating your video drivers (the screen that changes the color bit depth should tell you what kind of video adapter your laptop has; go to the manufacturer's website and get the latest driver).

Cant play DVD on CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive


Assuming you have tried different makes of cd or dvd disks, it's a classic drive failure problem where the laser can no longer burn or read dvd's, but may still be able to read cd's only. You will have to replace the drive, they are quite inexpensive, and very easy to fit.
